From Rags to Riches

One day they will notice you,

On that planet of success,

They will ask of you,

“Oh yah, kumbe she was a go-getter”,

They will dial your contacts,

And try to reach to you,

You will suddenly be essential to them,

You will be the answer to their woes,

They will create traffic on your social media,


They will forget that you were from the Ghetto sometime back,

That you sought of their help but they found it easy to deny,

They will forget how much you kissed their asses,

They will forget, really forget, how much you pleaded to be part of their lives,

However, you need to remember one thing,

Only those that saw your storm,

Should see your rainbow.
